Jared Sullinger is a big dude. Known for having a wide frame is fine, especially when you use it to carve out room to hit the boards like Sully does. But Sullinger has acknowledged that he does need to shed some weight before the start of the season:

Sullinger clearly added some weight while he was sidelined with a back injury, understandably so. With the first preseason game tonight and the regular season right around the corner, it's time for the weight to come off. Even if this should have happened earlier, at least Sully is aware of this, and ready to put the work in. He is one of the building blocks of this young Celtics squad.
